america was losing its pull in the middle east. today the saudis proved it because while we're debating whether to pull aid from egypt here the saudis promising them a blank check, and as we cut aid to cairo, riyadh will make up the difference. the saudis want the muslim brotherhood out of egypt just as much as the government-backed military does and they're spare nothing expense to help make it possible and this isn't just about the saudis. israel also supports the crackdown of the military, eric says when it comes to our waning influence, a very sorry state. we have very few in our neighborhood now. bottom line, eric, our friends, quasi-friends, aren't exactly heeding our friendly advice. >> basically our influence in the middle east in egypt in particular, is out the window. as you said, israel, the saudis, jordan, all telling us, please, back the egyptian military. the muslim brotherhood are the original islamic terrorist group. they spawned al qaeda, created hamas. they are inherently antiamerican. so i have to shake my head and pull my hair out, why are we backing this group? a w

city and urban centers across america including here in milwaukee, wisconsin. policing is difficult enough. we ask our officers to do this with hand tied behind their back. this decision is not grounded in a sort of legal basis. now tying the other hand behind these men and women and not only new york city but across america. they go out and put their lives on the line in doing so. this becomes a cliche after a while when i hear the racial profiling charges against law enforce am. i have been in law enforcement for 35 years and hearing it for a long time. any time the claim is made, they had no factual basis. here comes that cliche again. i heard the thing earlier about some former convicts and former criminal inmate trying to give advice on how law enforcement should police is like a cat taking advice from a mouse on how to catch mice. that's the last group of people i would take advice from. if they have inside, most law enforcement are open to the ideas, but like i mentioned, they really -- gun buy back programs and walking around with signs and saying stop the violence, as mobil
bolling. it is 5:00. this is "the five." the debate over racial profiling in america was reignited with the trayvon martin case and the uproar over stand your ground laws. now another law is coming under intense national scrutiny and that is stop and frisk. last week, a federal judge banned new york police department from using the crime fighting tool, saying it targets minorities, yesterday, trayvon martin's mother and the head of the naacp got in support of the ruling. >> i think you have to give not only civilian but you have to give the police officers the right direction. you can't yield people in authority the right to stop somebody because of the color of their skin. >> just because there are more murders in our community doesn't mean that you can treat all of us like we are guilty. >> and why commissioner ray kelly argues it is minorities in danger without stop and frisk. >> the losers in this, if this case is allowed to stand, are people that live in minority communities. 97% of the shooting victims in new york city last year were people of color, black or latino. also iss

don't want that. >> it is wednesday, august the 21st. >> and america simply can't end our deadly love affair with gun guns. >> yesterday, the mcnair elementary school in decatur, georgia, saw a man walk in with 500 rounds of ammunition. he started shooting. well, there is only one way the story could end. wayne lapierre told us so. seven days after a 20-year-old man with a semiautomatic weapon walked into a school in connecticut and killed 26 people. >> the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun security is only available with properly trained good guys. >> it has 780 students, and it was not a guy who was properly trained that saved them. it was antoinette tuft, the school bookkeeper, she was behind a locked door when the man slipped in, had been buzzed in. antoinette described her first encounter with the shooter. >> he came in with the gun drawn, he said i'm not playing, this is for real, this is not for show. he had a look on him, that he was willing to kill. as a matter of fact, he said it. >> antoinette knew she had to keep the man occupied. at this point, the school was on
? >> jon: william la jeunesse, thank you. america needs to pay attention to those reports of a massive and deadly chemical weapons attack in syria. that's the word from president obama. but he also explained why it could hurt us big time if the u.s. gets too involved. plus, a grim milestone on the number of child refugees now trying to escape that bloody civil war. that's still ahead on "the fox report." this man is about to be the millionth customer. would you mind if i go ahead of you? instead we had someone go ahead of him and win fiy thousand dollars. congratulations you are our one millionth customer. nobody likes to miss out. that's why ally treats all their customers the same. whether you're the first or the millionth. if your bank doesn't think you're special anymore, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. it's a reality check. i had my reality check when i'd be sitting there with my friends who had their verizon phones and i'd be sitting there like "mine's still loading!" i couldn't get email. i couldn't stream movies. i couldn't upload any of our music. that's
, i doubt that will ruin his day. what's the difference between two young americas, one thirst for attention and the other achievement. personally, i'd like to hear more about ty carter, an amazing hero who devotes his time to wounded warriors. carter doesn't see his own heroism, he describes it as a failure for one fellow soldier he rescued, died later from his wounds, you have to read the whole story, it's pretty incredible. it won't win any awards from mtv, that's an award in and of itself. this guy's won more medals than michael phelps and u sasain bol combined. >> i think it's important to remember what happened that day. his group was in afghanistan, and they came under attack from above by 300 taliban, there were a small group of american soldiers there, the forward machine gunner was running out of bullets, this guy carried them out to 1 yards of open fire, and gave the machine guns. and then another one of his guys got shot, he went 100 yards to pick him up in the midst of all this fire, and took him back to the medevac tent. they take over with the guy who couldn't sh
the current racial situation in america? would he be pleased? that nearly 75% of black babies are born out of wedlock? no he would not be. would he be accepting of the violent crime wave caused by young black men? >> he would be appalled. we accept the broken educational system in many poor precincts? >> no, he would not. would he be happy with the rap industry and other pernicious entertainment aimed at the young? i do not believe dr. king would be happy about that at all. and, finally, we approve of a civil rights movement that continues to blame american society for the problems encountered by blacks rather than encouraging personal responsibility as a way to achieve individual success? on saturday, tens of thousands of folks gathered in washington to honor dr. king's crusade. but sadly, sadly, most of the speeches were heavy on grievance, light on problem-involving. we heard a small but a criticism directed at irresponsible behavior that leads to chaos and ruin but not much. however, we did hear a lot about racial profiling. and voter identification requirements. we heard questionable
to america, but not all. >> somewhere along the way white sheets were traded for button-down white shirts. attack dogs and water hoses were traded for tasers and widespread implementation of stop and frisk policies. nooses were traded for handcuffs. >> bill: that kind of grievance mongering does the cause of civil rights no good whatsoever, period. the nation's first black president was the star of the day, giving an energetic presentation. he began with the history of dr. king's speech in times 50 years ago. then president obama turned political. >> the gap in wealth between races is not lessened, it's grown. as president clinton indicated, the position of all working americans, regardless of color, has eroded, making the dream dr. king described even more elusive. >> whose fault is that? the reason working americans are having such a hard time is twofold. first mr. obama's attempt to manage the economy from washington. that's largely failed. the private sector must drive economic expansion, not the feds, and the president has not yet embraced that. second, the skill level of many americ
